Calling all intermediate to advanced hikers for a fun Saturday early morning hike! Come enjoy hiking and getting back home early for more weekend fun. We will start at the Visitor Center trailhead and then take the AT Approach trail to the Len Foote Hike Inn cut-over trail. After we enjoy our lunch at the Hike Inn, we will take the Len Foote trail. Following a brief stop at the top of the falls, we will proceed back down to the Visitor Center where we started.
Before you sign up for this hike, please make sure that you can hike the posted distance comfortably at a moderate speed with only a few breaks.
Note: as this hike starts at the Visitor Center, it has more distance and ascent than the typical loop hike done from the Top of the Falls. This hike will be approximately 11.6 miles with 3,150 feet of ascent.
|How to Get There:|
Directions will be available at the carpool location.
|Carpool to Event Distance (round trip):||96Mile(s)|
|Carpool Departure Time:||7:30 am|

|Carpool Cost:||Estimated cost per vehicle for this event is $38.40 using a reimbursement rate guideline of $0.400 per mile. The total amount should be divided by the number of people in the vehicle, including the driver. This is a guideline, not a rule, for drivers but the cost should not be higher unless there are extenuating circumstances.|
Sometimes, the Len Foote Inn will share coffee, tea, fruit and other leftovers as snacks for day hikers. If this privilege is available and you choose to take advantage of it, kindly bring cash to tip appropriately or donate.
* We encourage all members to follow our Etiquette Guidelines while participating in AOC events.
Approximate vehicle expense for this event is $38.40 (calculated at total miles (96) * $0.400, effective Tuesday, June 02, 2015). This is based on the current gas, maintenance, and other costs of $0.400 per mile as stated by the IRS & Cars.com. This should be divided by the total number of people in the vehicle (incl driver).
There is another $5.00 State Park Fee per car, unless you have an annual park pass.
Cancellation/Partial Attendance: Please review the AOC cancellation policy.
